AOL and Vuguru Present Season 2 of Little Women Big Cars

Little women, big stars! AOL and Vuguru are excited to announce the highly anticipated premiere of season 2 of "Little Women Big Cars", now showing on AOL On Parenting. Season 1 of the comedy premiered last year and was viewed more than 5.7 million times* and season 2 is shaping up to be even better!

Amy Yasbeck (Wings, Hot in Cleveland), Julie Warner (Crash, Nip/Tuck) and Kristy Swanson (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Psych) reprise their roles as suburban soccer moms struggling to balance their hectic lives both on and off the field. Anita Barone (The War at Home, Shake it Up!) joins the cast playing Connie, a curvaceous and big-hearted mob wife.

The four moms' divergent parenting styles test their friendship when Rocky puts her daughter on the beauty pageant circuit. Barbara's blossoming relationship with soccer coach A.J. becomes more awkward when their exes, Richard and Doro, start flirting on the soccer field sidelines. Meg stresses when her school finance committee gets audited and things get worse when she discovers that Connie's husband is being unfaithful. The humor unfolds as the friends struggle to manage the chaos of kids and their personal lives.

The second season of "Little Women Big Cars", is presented by Allstate Insurance Company, and also offers a unique integration opportunity for their brand – but you'll have to watch the show to find out what it is.

AOL On and Vuguru Debut All-New Comedy Series 'Playdate'

Following the success of Little Women, Big Cars, Fetching and Greetings From Home, AOL On and Vuguru are bringing you another original comedy series called Playdate. Set in suburban America, Playdate stars Amy (Stephanie Lemelin), a seemingly perfect stay-at-home mom, and Grace (Alicia Witt), the bohemian, eccentric, and new, next-door neighbor. The two soon become best friends; even their daughters are inseparable.

Playdate takes an unexpected twist when Grace turns on Amy, causing her new "best friend" to lose her grip on the parental balancing act where she finds herself at the center of the other mommy's scorn and ridicule. As more and more of her life begin to crumble around her, Amy starts to suspect Grace is behind her downfall. But is Grace really to blame or is Amy the one with the real problem?

Tune in to find out - the series debuts today! Watch the trailer below and check out new episodes each week on AOL On Parenting.
